Art Portfolio Review Day a Huge Success

October 11, 2019

Art Portfolio Day is an annual event at GCC sponsored by the Art Department where students and members of the community can bring their artwork for critique by representatives from Art Schools across the country. This year’s Art Portfolio Review Day occurred on Thursday, October 10th in the South Gallery. This was a free event that was open to the public.

It is estimated that nearly 50 artists attended the event, including several GCC students who had their portfolios instantly accepted at four-year art schools! We also welcomed several high school students who ventured to GCC from Brattleboro, NMH, Great Barrington, and West Springfield. Schools represented this year included:
